dc.description.abstractHere is an engaging, imaginative approach to the life of Aesop in a paperback book of some 230 pages. There is a T of C at the beginning and a chronology at the end. Unfortunately, the page numbers do not appear on the pages themselves. There are twelve chapters tracking Aesop from his childhood to his death. The chapters are organized within three parts. Each part has a prologue. The key to the work is given in the preface. Thomas first correctly assesses the present situation: Very little is known of his life and the present book, I hope, shall to some extent satisfy that lacuna. His method he makes clear soon after: Where facts are missing I have papered over the gaps with a higher truth. For Thomas, Aesop is a symbol for everyman. Thomas himself aptly proclaims This is a work of imagination. I concur, and I have enjoyed watching Benny's imagination at work. The experience is helped by the black-and-white illustrations along the way. I am delighted to have received a copy of this book! Cataloguing this book has made me aware of Lulu Publishing. One can purchase an online version of this book as well as the physical book from Lulu.en_US
